Back in the saddle after kissing his partnership with PokerStars goodbye in December for making Islamophobic comments, Davis’ first act as a GG-man was to announce his “new biggest online POKER freeroll ever,” shared via Twitter:
Davis was referencing a new GGPoker weekly poker event he will host live on Twitch, starting June 8. Davis and his new partner also used their collaborative debut on Twitter to push GGPoker’s $10m guaranteed MicroFestival poker tournament series. He will also represent GGPoker at the London World Series of Poker in July.
True Geordie lost his deals with both PokerStars and Gym Shark last year after firing off Islamophobic comments aimed at controversial personality Andrew Tate. He released a YouTube apology video at the time in which he referred to his comments as an “idiotic joke.”
